We had about a week of cold weather and I like soup when the weather is cold. This is a potato cheese soup that is very easy and very tasty. Slainte!
Potato Cheese Soup
5 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 small carrot, finely chopped
1/2 stalk celery, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups milk (I used 1%)
3 tablespoons margarine, melted
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons steak seasoning (I used Montreal steak seasoning)
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cups shredded cheese (I use sharp cheddar)
1. In a large pot over medium heat, combine potatoes, carrot, celery, water and salt. 2. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Once tender, stir in milk.
3. In a small bowl, combine melted margarine, flour, steak seasoning and pepper. Stir into soup, increase heat to medium, and cook, stirring, until thick and bubbly.
4. Remove from heat and stir in cheese until melted. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
I topped with cheese and a little Tastefully Simple Bacon Bacon. It refrigerates well and tastes great as leftovers too!
